Thread: The rebrand and name change thread Part II

    I think it is relevant. Going back to the early days of the relocation battle when this forum was at war with Charlottians and the insults of city versus city were flying around, to sever any connection with Charlotte real or imagined is important.

Mr. Panic Hoops, all props go to you. You may have saved us from a crappy name. Did I mention that Dukes works and I like it?
    A week ago I was torn between the Brass and Pelicans. I too am firmly within the Dukes camp!
    I once had some of the worst grits and drippings in the Queen City

    I can only hope this camp grows quickly. Although the Crawfish has a nice ring to it too.

    We deserve better than teal, pinstripes, Hornets, Knights, and any other reference to the "Queen City." We're New Orleans, the greatest city with the most culture in these states united.

    im gonna have a crack at whats missing and say a basketball??
    Nice, but no that's not what I see although it would have to be in there somewhere for revelance.

    Also wuggie said you were working on a Knights draft, how's it looking?
    It's looking like a Knights concept! (sorry, too good to pass up) But I'm working on it as we speak.

    Dub,

    any chance we could get a Dukes mock up?
    If I just had a tip jar for every concept that I've been asked to do...I could pay Drew's contract LOL! Nah...I could do one. Why the hell not? It's not like I'm not doing the other one's that's been asked. I would have to do some research for logo's and inspiration and what not!

    bigdub81 is da man!

    BigDub,

    Looking forward to seeing your concepts...especially on the Dukes. I would think there could be some similar elements extracted from Knights?

    You are the best poster on the forum!



    So much to work with... we have a bit of jazz, a bit of Mardi Gras, and a bit of history.

    Thanks PleasenoKrewe.

    I was in the Krewe group at first, but then i thought it was boring. We're the DUKES!!! No one messes with the DUKES!!!

    Quick question: What do y'all think of the Gold/Black/Gray/Red color scheme for the Knights? Any better ideas?

    I'm sitting here trying to Google images for "Duke of Orleans" and "French Duke(s)" and all these regal images of men posing just keep popping up. Big wig's, frilly collars, too much fabric...presuming that we would have to stick to the French Duke aspect, it's kind of hard to draw inspiration just from these images. I can't see how a Knights theme would translate into something for Dukes? Mayb I'm just missing it or the fact that the more that I look at these images, I just see a bunch of wealthy, pretty boy's! IDK!

    New Orleans Dukes!

    Unique

    Ties in with our music, Dukes of Dixieland

    Mardi Gras, every krewe has Dukes (officers)

    Also ties in with our French heritage, as we were named after the Duke of Orleans.

    Sadly, this is the only image I could come up with



    wait, I have another





    Now let's get Dub on Dukes, and we could have our name.

    Dub,


    Best pics I could find.

    That can never happen. New Orleans and Charlotte will always have a shared history with this franchise. There are numerous teams all over the major sports in which this is the case. What's done is done.

    With any new name, the most important thing is to own the identity. The name "Lakers" doesn't seem strange at all from an L.A. team, because that franchise has put a definitive stamp on it. They aren't just a team that plays in a city, they are an attraction. If Benson forges a winner, it won't matter if there are other teams with the same nickname.
    With purple and pinstripes from days gone by, I trumpet Hugo's name to the NOLA sky. When rebranders and posers abuse their might, beware my power, TEAL LANTERN'S LIGHT!

    Forever hating the nickname, the logos, and the colors. Still backing the team I've loved since 1994.

    Stolen name. Stolen colors. Stolen identity. Still the same old worthless Slobcats. Suck sludge, Charlotte.

    From the looks of it, whatever concepts you came up with for Knights could be easily applied to Dukes.

    I am not sure why, but I can envision scarlet and sliver in some way, shape, or form....
